Using the hydrodynamic limit theory, we will review the large deviations of the heat current through a diffusive system maintained off equilibrium by two heat baths at unequal temperatures. In particular, we will discuss the occurrence of dynamical phase transitions which may occur for some models and the structure of the long range correlations in systems maintained off equilibrium.
